KJV 2COR9 with Strong's Hebrew/Greek2COR8.htm 2COR10.htm
9:1 For [G1063] as [G3303] touching [G4012] the ministering [G1248] to [G1519] the saints [G40] , it is [G2076] superfluous [G4053] for me [G3427] to write [G1125] to you [G5213] :
9:2 For [G1063] I know [G1492] the forwardness of [G4288] your [G5216] mind [G4288] , for which [G3739] I boast [G2744] of [G5228] you [G5216] to them of Macedonia [G3110] , that [G3754] Achaia [G882] was ready [G3903] a year [G4070] ago [G575] ; and [G2532] your [G5216] zeal [G2205] [G1537] hath provoked [G2042] very many [G4119] .
9:3 Yet [G1161] have I sent [G3992] the brethren [G80] , lest [G3363] our [G2257] boasting [G2745] of [G5228] you [G5216] should be in vain [G2758] in [G1722] this [G5129] behalf [G3313] ; that [G2443] , as [G2531] I said [G3004] , ye may be [G5600] ready [G3903] :
9:4 Lest [G3381] haply [G4458] if [G1437] they of Macedonia [G3110] come [G2064] with [G4862] me [G1698] , and [G2532] find [G2147] you [G5209] unprepared [G532] , we [G2249] (that [G3363] we say [G3004] not [G3363] , ye [G5210] ) should be ashamed [G2617] in [G1722] this same [G5026] confident [G5287] boasting [G2746] .
9:5 Therefore [G3767] I thought [G2233] it necessary [G316] to exhort [G3870] the brethren [G80] , that [G2443] they would go before [G4281] unto [G1519] you [G5209] , and [G2532] make up beforehand [G4294] your [G5216] bounty [G2129] , whereof ye had notice before [G4293] , that the same [G5026] might be [G1511] ready [G2092] , [G3779] as [G5613] [a matter of] bounty [G2129] , and [G2532] not [G3361] as [G5618] [of] covetousness [G4124] .(bounty: Gr. blessing)(whereof: or, which hath been so much spoken of before)
9:6 But [G1161] this [G5124] [I say], He which soweth [G4687] sparingly [G5340] shall reap [G2325] also [G2532] sparingly [G5340] ; and [G2532] he which soweth [G4687] bountifully [G1909] [G2129] shall reap [G2325] also [G2532] bountifully [G1909] [G2129] .
9:7 Every man [G1538] according as [G2531] he purposeth [G4255] in his heart [G2588] , [so let him give]; not [G3361] grudgingly [G1537] [G3077] , or [G2228] of [G1537] necessity [G318] : for [G1063] God [G2316] loveth [G25] a cheerful [G2431] giver [G1395] .
9:8 And [G1161] God [G2316] [is] able [G1415] to make [G4052] all [G3956] grace [G5485] abound [G4052] toward [G1519] you [G5209] ; that [G2443] ye, always [G3842] having [G2192] all [G3956] sufficiency [G841] in [G1722] all [G3956] [things], may abound [G4052] to [G1519] every [G3956] good [G18] work [G2041] :
9:9 (As [G2531] it is written [G1125] , He hath dispersed abroad [G4650] ; he hath given [G1325] to the poor [G3993] : his [G846] righteousness [G1343] remaineth [G3306] for [G1519] ever [G165] .
9:10 Now [G1161] he that ministereth [G2023] seed [G4690] to the sower [G4687] both [G2532] minister [G5524] bread [G740] for [G1519] [your] food [G1035] , and [G2532] multiply [G4129] your [G5216] seed sown [G4703] , and [G2532] increase [G837] the fruits [G1081] of your [G5216] righteousness [G1343] ;)
9:11 Being enriched [G4148] in [G1722] every thing [G3956] to [G1519] all [G3956] bountifulness [G572] , which [G3748] causeth [G2716] through [G1223] us [G2257] thanksgiving [G2169] to God [G2316] .(bountifulness: or, liberality: Gr. simplicity)
9:12 For [G3754] the administration [G1248] of this [G5026] service [G3009] not [G3756] only [G3440] supplieth [G2076] [G4322] the want [G5303] of the saints [G40] , but [G235] is abundant [G4052] also [G2532] by [G1223] many [G4183] thanksgivings [G2169] unto God [G2316] ;
9:13 Whiles by [G1223] the experiment [G1382] of this [G5026] ministration [G1248] they glorify [G1392] God [G2316] for [G1909] your [G5216] professed [G3671] subjection [G5292] unto [G1519] the gospel [G2098] of Christ [G5547] , and [G2532] for [your] liberal [G572] distribution [G2842] unto [G1519] them [G846] , and [G2532] unto [G1519] all [G3956] [men];
9:14 And [G2532] by their [G846] prayer [G1162] for [G5228] you [G5216] , which long after [G1971] you [G5209] for [G1223] the exceeding [G5235] grace [G5485] of God [G2316] in [G1909] you [G5213] .
9:15 [G1161] Thanks [G5485] [be] unto God [G2316] for [G1909] his [G846] unspeakable [G411] gift [G1431] .
